In a new aggression against Syria, the Israeli regime has targeted an area in the east of Hader town in northern Quneitra, just across the border from the Golan Heights. According to local media reports, the Israeli regime fired 12 shells at the region on Monday morning. No casualties have been reported so far. Israeli media outlets claimed that its occupation army targeted a military installation in the northern part of Quneitra belonging to Hezbollah, according to al-Mayadeen TV. Using Lebanese or Palestinian airspace, Israel frequently carries out missile attacks on targets in Syria. In late October, the Israeli regime also launched similar attacks on Damascus, Syria’s capital, during which most of the missiles were shot down by Syrian air defenses. In early November, Syrian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Faisal Mekdad strongly condemned Israeli airstrikes, emphasizing that his country will definitely give a crushing response to such acts of aggression at some point in the future. The Israeli regime frequently violates Syria’s sovereignty by targeting military positions inside the Arab country, especially those of the resistance movement Hezbollah, which has played a vital role in helping the Syrian army fight foreign-backed terrorists. Israel mostly keeps quiet about its attacks on the Syrian territories, which many view as a knee-jerk reaction to the Syrian government’s increasing success in confronting terrorism. The Tel Aviv regime has been a main supporter of terrorist groups that have battled the government of President Bashar al-Assad since foreign-backed militancy erupted in Syria in early 2011. Syria has repeatedly complained to the UN over Israeli assaults, urging the Security Council to take action against Tel Aviv’s crimes. The calls have, however, fallen on deaf ears.
